Drop Earrings Not Bombs is a small project created in 2017 by a women-led social enterprise Muhra, in Istanbul, Turkey. Muhra is an Arabic word for the female foal, representing female leaders’ strength and vitality. They teach Syrian female artisans to design and handcraft these beautiful earrings.
The mission of 'Drop Earrings Not Bombs' is to improve the income of these relocated Syrian families in Istanbul, encourage female artisans to become role models of their communities, and develop the courage to plan for their future.
An Opportunity To Rebuild A Life.
